Bamboo Clothing and Accessories Retailer, Cariloha, Introduces Men’s & Women’s Bamboo Shorts

Cariloha introduces men’s and women’s shorts made from soft, eco-friendly bamboo fabric to its Cariloha stores worldwide.

SALT LAKE CITY – This week, Cariloha is introducing a new line of men’s and women’s casual-wear shorts that are made from soft, eco-friendly viscose from bamboo. For the time being, these bamboo shorts will be available exclusively at Cariloha stores, which are located in the continental U.S., Mexico, Caribbean, Hawaii and Alaska. They will be available on Cariloha.com by early summer.

Bamboo is the raw material of choice for Cariloha’s entire clothing line. Cariloha turns hard bamboo shoots into smooth, soft fabrics, which the company uses to make everything from bedding and bath goods to fitness gear and socks. The viscose-from-bamboo shorts are part of Cariloha’s Bamboo Style Line, which helps round out Cariloha’s apparel offering for men and women.

“Our new line of bamboo shorts are milled using a proprietary process that gives them a noticeably softer hand – they’re the softest shorts we’ve ever created and that I’ve personally ever worn,” said Scott Brady, Cariloha Associate VP of Communications. “They’re ideal for a day at the beach, a round of 18 holes at the golf course, or a nap on a palm-stretched hammock.”
